Fantasy football owners will accept any point margin to keep a win streak alive, but if you are able to win in a commanding fashion, it makes the streak all the more sweet. That is what BIG O accomplished this week when they put up the second-highest score this week, and won their third win in as many matchups, taking down Romos's CrackBack 126.00 to 108.75. Adding insult to injury, Romos's CrackBack had a starter score zero points (Devin Taylor). Romos's CrackBack goes to 2-2 and stays put in fourth place. BIG O is in third place having also recently knocked over the MOUNTAIN (136.38 to 119.50) and twin 2's Team (136.52 to 98.30).

Smooth Moves by BIG O

  • Reading this matchup recap is indicative of potential Toyota Hall of Famers. You're making BIG O look really good right now.
  • Zach Brown just re-wrote the record books, setting the league season high for total points in a week with 30.50.
  • With 13.75 points against a projected 9.88, Paul Posluszny ranked 10th in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in three straight games.
  • In scoring 13.00 points, Barry Church put up his largest point total of the year.
  • Cameron Jordan exceeded scoring projections by 115.1%, with 12.50 points against a projected 5.81.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Funny, the Hall provides articles you could have studied. But instead you watched Romos's CrackBack cry trying.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Romos's CrackBack thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Mason Foster. However, he scored 5.25 points against a projected 12.19 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 8.75 points for Jerrell Freeman this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 58.3% of a projected point total of 15.02.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Telvin Smith scored a season-low 11.50 points, 94.5% of his projected 12.17, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • 9 of the 15 starters scored less than their projected points.

What If

  • If they played the same schedule as BIG O, Romos's CrackBack would be 1-2.
  • If they played every team every week, Romos's CrackBack would be 7-13.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 4

Anthony Allen Was - WR 1987 vs. St. Louis 7 Catches, 255 yards, 3 touchdowns To say that Allen’s Week 4 performance in ’87 stands out in his NFL career would be a major understatement.

In what was the first of three games played that season with replacement players due to a player’s strike, Allen took advantage of his moment in the spotlight (and the Cardinals scab secondary) to the tune of 255 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He set the Washington franchise record for receiving yards, which still stands today. In total, Allen played parts of just five NFL seasons - including just those three strike games in ’87 – amassing a total of 767 receiving yards, a third of which came in this Week 4 contest.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
